(2) Provide lots of fresh water.
When it's hot outside, pets will drink a lot more water. So make sure you keep their bowls filled up. Pets are also notorious for spilling their water, or even playing in it. So make sure you keep your pet's water in a bowl that cannot be turned over. Also, remember that water sitting in the sun will get hot. So if a pet is already overheated and they drink hot water, it is not going to help them to cool down. (Photo credit GEORGES GOBET/AFP/Getty Images)
